Catholic priest fired for sexual abuse received a recommendation to work at Disneyland: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN’s correspondent, Jean Casarez, sat down with Jake Tapper to discuss the “incredibly, disturbing”  report that detailed decades of sexual assault cases from Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania.

“Now that it’s out, the details are incredibly disturbing,” Tapper said.

“The abuse is far too graphic to describe in details,” Casarez said. “But here is just one example: a priest sexually assaulted a little girl as he was visiting her in the hospital after she had her tonsils out. Grand jurors found that church leaders in every part of the state preferred to protect the abusers and institutions above all.”

She then detailed one case where a known sexual abuser asked for a recommendation to work at Disneyland.

“The report describes a priest who quit after being the subject of many child abuse complaints, but he asked for and received according to this report a letter of recommendation for work at Disneyland,” she said.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and President Donald Trump have tried to promote the idea that somehow Americans aren't watching the impeachment hearings and that their ratings are terrible.

Axios reported Friday evening that the Thursday hearings garnered 11.3 million viewers during the day-time. For context, that's an astounding number. The top ratings getter during the day is syndicated Dr. Phil episodes, who leads the way with 3.45 million viewers per episode so far this season and "Ellen" had 2.668 million.

Donald Trump is obsessed with impeachment — and lashing out

Published

on

An irate Donald Trump said Friday he welcomes the prospect of an impeachment trial, as the US leader lashed out at "crazy" and "corrupt" opponents probing potential abuse of presidential power.

After a week of dramatic impeachment testimony from current and former administration officials, an embattled Trump took to a favorite broadcaster to air a long, occasionally incoherent list of grievances -- against the FBI, his political adversaries, impeachment inquiry leaders, the "deep state," and more.

"These people are sick," Trump raged down the telephone line to Fox at the start of a 53-minute tirade that showed how angered and unsettled he has been by an impeachment inquiry that threatens his presidency.
